Be still and know that I am God

Be still and know that I am God.�It’s early April and it’s snowing…a lot.  Inches of snow on the ground, and it’s cold.  I was really ready for Springtime and eating breakfast outside on my bistro set.  I imagined watching the daffodils (narcissus) swaying gently in cool spring breezes.  My daffodils are bent over and covered in snow. Be still and know that I am God.

My dog doesn’t want to go outside in the snow, therefore my husband must go ahead and shovel. I’m sure he’d rather not locate his winter coat, and boots, and hat, and gloves.  He already moved the shovel back to the barn. Be still and know that I am God.

My head hurts.  The temperature goes up, then drops down, then back up again. Then the barometer changes,the pollen blows, the rain comes, the clouds come, the clouds go.  The joke in Ohio is “wait 5 minutes and the weather will change.”  It is so true.  Snow in April, lots of snow. Be still and know that I am God.

My daughter wants to go outside in the April snow storm and build a snowman.  She wants to get all bundled up and build a snowman.  She wants to get all bundled up and go sledding.  She’s been sick with a cold, followed by strep throat, and is still on penicillin.  We tell her“better not because she’s been sick”.  Be still and know that I am God.

We’ve been reading all week about being content no matter where you are in life.  Be content in all things, in all situations.  Be still and know that I am God.

This is about trusting God, being still, being content. I will change the way I look at life.  I will be still know that He is God and believe that today is a great day. The snow is beautiful, it’s Saturday morning and it’s not that cold outside.  Maybe husband, daughter, dog and myself just need to bundle up and build that snowman after all?  Maybe I’m not too old to go sled riding and roll around in the snow! This is the day that the Lord has made.  Be still and know that I am God.

Be still and know that I am God

Do you know the origins of this phrase?  It is from the old testament scripture loved by millions from Psalm 46:10? The scripture from the King James Biblereads; “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” All the products below are inspired from Psalm 46:10 and serve us as great reminders!
